The Benefits of having a Resin Driveway
They are aesthetically pleasing, traditional concrete driveways are a lot of things but beautiful isn’t one of them. At Thortech, we can offer you a range of colours from bright pigmented colours to dark modern colours. We can even offer to place unique designs created by you into the surface!
Our resin driveways are also simple to install. A basic concrete or gravel driveway can take days to install. Our resin driveways, however, can be installed in a few hours depending on the size of the area covered (How good is that!).
WHAT IS A RESIN BONDED SURFACE
Quite simply it is a surface of aggregate or gravel that has been bonded together with a special resin. This means that the aggregate used is not loose, will not move around, and is more hard wearing and less hazardous than loose aggregate or gravel surfaces.
INSTALLING A RESIN BONDED SURFACE
The area on which the resin surface is to be laid must be flat. Any major cracks or hollows will need to be filled as the resin will rise and fall with the base surface. The resin is then spread over the surface and the aggregate is then either trowelled over the resin for a smooth finish (bound) or scattered over the resin for an anti-skid finish (bonded). Once the resin has dried, any loose aggregate will be simply brushed away.
Resin driveways are maintenance free! This means you won’t need to spend your time and money keeping your driveway looking perfect. Our resin systems are also non-porous which increases durability. Almost any surface (gravel, paving, concrete) will be prone to damage after a lot of use. However, our resin systems can withstand almost anything from harsh sunlight to oil spills.
